Qualcomm reportedly chooses TSMC instead of Samsung for 3nm chip production

The semiconductor shortage has companies scrambling to find ways to somehow increase production in the current situation. For some companies, that means considering switching production operations with business partners like AMD, hoping to switch from using TSMC to Samsung for manufacturing needs. But with wiggles and detours happening so often, it looks like Qualcomm may be doing the opposite.

reporter Electricity, Qualcomm has placed foundry orders for its upcoming 3nm processors. Products with these processors won’t be released until next year, but production is said to have started late last year and is exclusive to Taiwanese chipmaker TSMC.
